Enter Sandman

So happy to report that the great "Enter Sandman" controversy is now over as Mariano Rivera said that he has no problem with Billy Wagner entering the game to the same song that he uses on the Bronx side of New York. As a further support, Peter Mensch, Metallica's band manager, is a Mets fan and said Wagner had the song first and told team officials that he could be on stage during a concert if that would entice him to relocate to Flushing. Mike and the Mad Dog spent a better part of Monday afternoon after the Mets game incessantly telling anyone who would listen, how horrible it is that Wagner uses the same song as Rivera and that he needs to change it because he is here in NY. It's amazing (no pun intended) that the two of them stay at the top of the radio talk show ratings given how much of a one-trick pony each of them have become, with Russo ranting about something he is clueless on and Francesca teling everyone how smart he is and how dumb everyone who disagrees with him is.


Mike & Chris are masters of the medium. Despite the obvious ploy to fill a slow sports day, they are both VERY knowledgeable about baseball. You can't confuse their digs at the METS, their management & fans for ignorance.

Billy Wagner should be forced to ask the great Mariano Rivera for permission to exist, let alone bite on his song choice.

Considering the fact that Wagner used the song first, and that it's a song, nothing more, this whole controversy seemed contrived by Mike and the angry puppy to help generate radio listeners. Now, I am a Mets fan, one who doesn't root against the Yankees, but your comment is why many fans do hate the Yankees, it's not the players, but their fans view of entitlement. At least, you rooted for them when they had Stump Merrill, Mel Hall, Stankeiwicz, etc., but how many of "johnny come lately" fans remember those days, or would have been fans back then of the "greatest team on earth?"

Mike and I tabled about this a bit:
